Blisterwood stake detail

Blisterwood stakes are throwing weapons fletched from blisterwood logs released as a reward along with the blisterwood staff and the blisterwood polearm from The Branches of Darkmeyer. All three weapons require 70 Fletching to make. The stakes and their off-hand counterparts require 70 Ranged. It is also possible to receive strange rocks from making these weapons. Their stats are higher than dragon darts and are on par with Karil's pistol crossbow and the crystal chakram.

Despite having no discernible metallic parts, blisterwood stakes can still be recovered by wearing one of Ava's devices.

After partial completion of The Lord of Vampyrium, blisterwood stakes can be converted to ammo for the blisterwood stake-thrower crossbow by right-clicking on them.

  • +50% hit chance
  • Chance to deal up to double the normal damage for that attack (including bleeds like Dismember)

  • These can be made on Entrana by smuggling blisterwood logs to the island and making it there.
  • Blisterwood stakes used to not harm Vyrewatch when used with abilities, this was a bug and has been fixed. Interestingly, Binding Shot still stunned Vyrewatch as normal.
